Until now, Zak Gibbs' greatest challenge has been finding a way to buy a car. But when he discovers an odd wristwatch amidst his father's various inventions and slips it on, something very strange happens. The world around him seemingly comes to a stop; giving the effect that everyone has come to a stop. Zak quickly learns how to manipulate the device, and he and his quick-witted, beautiful new friend, Francesca, have some real fun. What they soon realize, though, is they are not alone in hypertime. Written by Sujit R. Varma

I wish i had a watch like that to stop time to get some popcorn and not miss any of this great movie!
30 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Clockstoppers is the best movie EVER! I was scepticall that it was going to be so good when I first heard about the movie because it was a Nickelodian movie, boy was I wrong! I went with three of my friends (we are 13) and we all loved it. The movie about a scientist(French Stewert) who invents a watch that makes time "stop". He sends a watch to a Zaks (Jesse Bradford) father (Robin Thomas), who is a scientist, and Zak finds it. Zak and a friend Francesca (Paula Garces) find out its power and decide to have some fun with it. But soon they find out a secret band of tecknologically advanced government agents are trying to steal the watch back at any extent but Zak and Francesca wont give it up and they must escape them before the agents kill them! I give it a 100 stars out of 10! Itz a must see. So go see it!
